The thread "My favorite VB user avatars...." got me wondering why many of us have chosen the avatars we currently use. Is your avatar a picture of yourself or your pets? Is it something that moves you or do you just find it funny? Tell us about it.

My avatar is an image of a parrot taken from the movie 'Rio'. I've always loved birds, and parrots in particular have always fascinated me with their intelligence and beauty. Someday, I would love to work with a parrot rescue that deals with neglected or abandoned birds.

<<<---Poppy, my Chihuahua, has been one of the most influential "people" in my life. Because of her, I'm vegan. Because of her, I started in fostering Chihuahuas. And because of her, my circle of friends has grown, my life is better, and I go to bed every night snuggled against someone who loves me.

Well, my avatar is always something band related or something I drew on paint


This is my favourite singer, guitarist, and bass player laughing. This has always been one of my favourite pictures of them.

I choose not to have an avatar. I have in the past but then I get flamed on a board or something and I think 'why do I have something that matters to me on some board on the internet'

I do have my cats as my picture on Ravelry. I've only been treated nicely there. But then again conversations are usually related to knitting and crocheting.

Cause it's me. And out of all the various roles I've filled in my life, being a soldier the one I identified with the most.

What a fun thread! Very interesting to see the why behind people's choices.

<<<This is Dream from the epic Neil Gaiman graphic novels 'The Sandman.' It's an amazing set of books; incredible artwork and stories. I picked this avatar cause, well ya know - I think it's kinda cool.
